btw, where on L.I. are you? and are you keeping your R1?
I love my 09 R1 and may have to sell it to make room for the 1199
I'm in Nassau county. Def keeping the R1. Had the ECU "unleashed"'by Motomummy. Best mod. Bike is very quick.

I compare it with the 1199 as such:

R1 is to Porsche 911 TT as 1199s is to GT3 RS
R1 can be ridden by most anyone as can the 911 TT

the 1199S needs a lot of input as does the 3RS or it will bite you!!

I was sitting on an S /ABS at a dealer not 20 miles away when he told me that line of COMPLETE BS!! I went immediately to the bank and cut a check for my new bike from my new dealer who has been nothing short of perfect and just so accommodating since I bought it.

Bike had 1 mile on it.
Didnt you tell me you got it from Whitey at NY Motorcycle? Where is he at now again? Long Island? Dude that guy is a legend in Ducati !!

Unfortunately, never got to meet Whitey. Bought my R1 from them..good experience. However, the salesrep for the Duc either didn't know what was going on with bike to dealer allocations, or he was truly BS'ing me. Hard to believe he didn't know there were already bikes on the island. It's a small
Island with an even smaller Ducati community.

I did hear tell that their company was going through significant management changes; thus there could have been some validity to their particular units being delayed.

It was the global state of 'zero' bikes on the island that pushed me away from them.

As my momma used to say, don't try to BS a BS'er!

"Your second in line!" I had a friend phone up to be told the first one had been delivered but the next 4 were going to one family. So jumped ship and landed on a cancelled order. Job done just need to arrange 5 spare minutes to pick the bloody thing up!!!

I Ride: Ducati 1199 S ABS & '09 Triumph Daytona 675
I was told it had a turbo. I didn't believe them, but then I rode it and experienced the power delivery myself. Now as I accelerate I yell at it, "spool damn it! spool!!!"

Completely lost me with this comment. How will it bite you?

I have ridden both and own a 1199s (came from a 1098 streetfighter) and find it one of the easiest bikes I have ridden. Even more so compared to the r1 which will buck you off in a second if your throttle hand gets to excited.

Seems an odd statement and would love to hear where it has "bitten" you.

Too many Yama-Hops to the head. I'm with you and what the heck is he talking about with all the 'this is to that' comparison non-sense. Using some of his 'logic' I say the R1 is to the 1199 as an anchor is to a speedboat.

Talking Stay Focused Please?

Correct me if I am wrong gents, are we "off topic" a bit here on my thread?
It was started to show the community all the stupid ass stuff that sales reps are doing around the country, and world! I am still amazed at some of the stuff I am hearing here. Lets see what all the new buyers have to say about their experiences!!

Because it's true... I wasn't really told anything dumb by the dealership... surprisingly. I was able to ride my RC8R on the track again after getting the 1199. I found that the Ducati pulls SO much harder in the power band, but that the RC8R has the more traditional V-Twin power curve. That and the 1199 needs a lot more force to lock up the brakes and wheelie; very stable chassis.
